Dignified funeral services in Farnborough

At Francis Chappell & Sons, we're here to help make planning a funeral as simple as possible to make this difficult time a little easier for you. We offer two funeral options: the Simple Funeral and the Full Service Funeral.

The Simple Funeral is a lower cost option that will see us arrange a simple and dignified service for your loved one. If you can be flexible in your plans and don’t require many additional extras, this service will be suitable for you.

If you want to create a more personalised funeral, our Full Service Funeral offers more flexibility and a range of additional extras to choose from. Our funeral arranger will work with you to create the exact service you have in mind, whether that includes a personalised procession route, a unique hearse, an alternative coffin or any other personal touch.

Our funeral arrangers are dedicated to helping you through this process. They will be by your side every step of the way, making sure that you are completely satisfied with the send- off we provide for your loved one.

Whether the Simple Funeral or the Full Service Funeral is right for you, we guarantee that our team will fulfil their duties with the highest levels of compassion, dignity and respect.

Differences Between a Simple Funeral and a Full Service Funeral

When it comes to arranging a funeral, every person has unique needs and preferences. We’ve created two different options so we can cater to you, no matter what type of funeral you have in mind.

Our Simple Funeral offers a dignified, low cost option with limited flexibility and fewer optional extras. Our Full Service Funeral offers more flexibility regarding the time and place of your loved one’s service, as well as several optional extras you can choose from if you wish.

Both options offer equal levels of quality and care to both you and your loved one. From the moment we take your loved one into our care to the day of the funeral and beyond, our will be there to provide any support and guidance you may need along the way.
